In my previous article, I explained briefly what detoxification meant and looked at its benefits. I also mentioned that there were many ways to detoxify the body. Fortunately, there are simple ways to detoxify the body without you having to break the bank on drugs or diet programmes. Incorporate this simple, but efficient, ways into your daily living.
  • Drink plenty of water. I'm sure you've been told how vital water is to the body. Well it’s not a lie. One way to detoxify the body is by excreting waste, drinking water promotes bowel movement. It is recommended that you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. 
  • If you are often constipated, try drinking a warm glass of water early in the morning, before breakfast, to promote bowel movement. This always works for me. You could squeeze a few lemons or lime into the water. Lemons and Limes are good natural antioxidants which help in the normal body detox process. 
  • Foods high in fibre assist the body in eliminating waste. A warm bowl of weetabix for breakfast, for example, always works for me.
  • Increase your vegetable and fruit intake. Carrots, tomatoes, beetroot, sweet potatoes, berries, cabbage, pawpaw, and melon supply beneficial antioxidants such as vitamin C and E. 
  • Practice eating lighter meals. Rather than consume a large plate of food at a go, try eating it in three or four portions. It is easier on your digestive system. 
  • Exercise Exercise Exercise! This would help eliminate wastes through perspiration.
  • Alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine are not your friends when it comes to detoxification. 
  • Saturated fat from meat, crisps and peanuts stress the liver. Use healthier oils like olive and avocado oils. 
  • Avoid processed foods which often have low levels of vitamins and minerals and high quantities of preservatives and other additives. 
  • Eat a diet low in fat. 
  • Avoid fried foods. Grilling and boiling are better cooking methods than frying.
